PAX West 2019 Recap

When PAX rolls around, we hit BIG. This year was no different, especially considering we kicked off the weekend with the Castle Crashers Remastered Nintendo Switch release date (which is September 17th, by the way)! That energy carried us through the show to a wacky, wild, and fun-filled weekend.

Revisit the arcade-y excitement, heated competitions, and space bear shenanigans that happened at PAX West 2019 with our recap video!

Even though we’re pretty sure that video was everything you ever could have dreamed of (and more), you can check out the full photo album that we spent ages virtually scrapbooking right here. Bonus points for anyone who wants to try to play “Where’s Waldo?” and search for themselves in our photos.

Dream work makes the team work, or something like that.

Anyway, we’ll be doing this all again on the opposite coast next year at PAX East, which… will be much, much colder than this was. But just like you did at PAX West, you will warm our hearts and keep us going through sun, rain, sleet, or snow.

Just don’t bring the PAX pox with you next time, please.

Square Up or Back Off (Barbarian) at PAX West 2019!

The Back Off Barbarian High Score Challenge is coming to PAX West 2019, and we’re challenging you, and you, and anyone who comes to the show, and especially YOU!

Back Off Barbarian High Score Challenge

Entering is easy, winning is the hard part. To play, swing by our PAX West arcade at booth #1501 from 10 AM to 4 PM on any day of the show and try to survive longer than your friends, your enemies, and everyone else in Back Off Barbarian. If you manage to come out on top, you’ll earn yourself a big ol’ bag of Behemoth swag.

For the rule-followers and goody-two-shoes alike, here’s a full breakdown of the entry rules:

  • Play Back Off Barbarian in our arcade between 10 AM and 4 PM any day of PAX West. We’ll be located at booth #1501!
  • If you survive long enough to earn yourself a spot on the high-score table, enter your initials and snap a photo of your achievement with your phone.
  • Post the picture of your high score to Instagram using the hashtag #BOBChallengePAX.
  • You can try to snag that high score as many times as you’d like each day; you’ll just have to wait in line in between rounds.
  • Each day of the show, the person with the highest score will be crowned champion and earn themselves an awesome prize! However, an individual can only win one prize for the challenge during the PAX West 2019 weekend.

And that’s all there is to it! Bring your shufflin’ shoes, and get to surviving. We’ll see you there!
